With the tiebreaker game (#163) today, Christian Yelich of the Milwaukee Brewers has one more chance to capture the NL Triple Crown – a feat that hasn’t been done in the NL since 1937.
But it’ll be a challenge with Yelich trailing Nolan Arenado in the home run department by one (who will also playing a tiebreaker game), and trailing by two RBIs to Javier Baez of the Cubs (who is also playing a tiebreaker game).
Yelich, though, comfortably leads in the batting average category.
It’ll be an exciting game to watch. For collectors, it’s been great to see Yelich breakthrough this year after promising (but a little disappointing) seasons with the Miami Marlins.
Here are some of his autographed rookie cards that have great value considering he’s a legitimate Triple Crown candidate.
